Well, that makes the photo I came in to post seem very mundane. I visited my mother yesterday. Talking about cars, she mentioned her Renault Daupine which she owned when I was in my early Teens. She and I liked it, Dad hated it ... "too small, death trap" the usual. Might've been true in this case, I dunno ... but, I thought it was a fun car.
Cool, I figured somebody would like it. I think it was a motorcycle in a previous life, myself, but who knows. Isn't it super interesting??? It's been around the block a few times, so it looks worn, just like a military aircraft would look like after years of service. I'd never seen anything like it, that's for sure.

Meanwhile - I like the car you posted too! Who knows, it probably was dangerous, but it's super cool. Hey, at least we finally got a small car with some good safety, in our cars, right??

My father had one just like that when I was little..
I called it 'the beep' because of the sound the horn made...

When I got my smart.. I named it "Beep II" in honor of the Dauphine..
Both made in France. .both rear engine rear wheel drive.. and both had no clutch :-)

By 'no clutch', I assume you meant no peddle. Now, that I was unaware of ... I just assumed it had an automatic transmission, since it was my mother's car. Was it an automated manual, like the smart's? I never drove my mother's Dauphine, I was too young.
